The family of renowned author Hunter S. Thompson is looking for a cannon to blast his remains skyward, honoring a wish he often expressed.
Anyone wishing to provide the cannon is asked to write a 100 word essay and mail it to the Aspen Daily News. The paper will pass the entries on to the family.
The Daily News stresses the essays should be no longer than 100 words. And only snail mail allowed. No e-mails or phone calls.
